Headed to Mexico

It has been a crazy and hectic summer and I can't believe how the time has flown by. This is the week I leave for the orphanage in the Baja, Mexico. I have stuffed my suitcases with over 30 quilts (I lost count!) and it will be interesting checking in my bags as I won't be able to carry them very well. I have to leave my house at 3:15 am on Thursday morning for a 5:30 flight to San Diego. Then from there we will drive down to the orphanage ( I am really looking forward to my visit. I have gone to the Morelia, Mexico home before but have not been to the Baja mission yet. I have been making quilts for orphanages for the last four years and am really excited to be able to hand deliver the quilts myself this time. I hope to come back with lots of pictures to share with everyone. I was going to get a picture of my suitcases full but am afraid if I open them up they will explode. For some of the quilts I used those bags that you vacuum out the air. I really hope this is okay at the airport and they don't want to open those packages up as without a vacuum cleaner I would never be able to get the suitcases to close again.

For those of you that pray you could pray for my safe journey to and from Mexico. Flying is not one of my favorite things to do but I would not miss this opportunity just because I am nervous about flying.

I will post photos when I get back from my trip!
